Eyes Without A Face Lyrics

[Verse 1: Billy Idol]

I’m all out of hope
One more bad dream
Could bring a fall
When I’m far from home
Don’t call me on the phone
To tell me you’re alone
It’s easy to deceive
It’s easy to tease
But hard to get release

[Chorus: Billy Idol & Perri Lister]

(Les yeux sans visage)
Eyes without a face
(Les yeux sans visage)
Eyes without a face
(Les yeux sans visage)
Eyes without a face
Got no human grace
You’re eyes without a face

[Verse 2: Billy Idol]

I spend so much time
Believing all the lies
To keep the dream alive
Now it makes me sad
It makes me mad at truth
For loving what was you

[Chorus: Billy Idol & Perri Lister]

(Les yeux sans visage)
Eyes without a face
(Les yeux sans visage)
Eyes without a face
(Les yeux sans visage)
Eyes without a face
Got no human grace
You’re eyes without a face

[Bridge: Billy Idol]

When you hear the music, you make a dip
Into someone else’s pocket then make a slip
Steal a car and go to Las Vegas
Oh, the gigolo pool
Hanging out by the state line
Turning holy water into wine
Drinking it down, oh
I’m on a bus on a psychedelic trip
Reading murder books, trying to stay hip
I’m thinking of you and you’re out there, so
Say your prayers
Say your prayers
Say your prayers

[Verse 3: Billy Idol]

Now I close my eyes
And I wonder why
I don’t despise
Now all I can do
Is love what was once
So alive and new
But it’s gone from your eyes
I’d better realise

[Chorus: Billy Idol & Perri Lister]

(Les yeux sans visage)
Eyes without a face
(Les yeux sans visage)
Eyes without a face
(Les yeux sans visage)
Eyes without a face
Got no human grace
You’re eyes without a face
Such a human waste
You’re eyes without a face

[Outro: Billy Idol]

And now it’s getting worse
